Righteous Or Vice?

A name we all know is the 42nd President of The United States Of America, George W. Bush. Many can argue if he is “Righteous Or Vice?”, but now matter what he is the MAN who is calling the shits. After his presidency, he will probably be remembered by three important events; the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11/01, his infamous Tax Relief, and the controversial War in Iraq. I’m not going to make you change your mind about him, I’m just going to point some facts out to you.
The Terrorist Attacks on September 11th, 2001 has changed the world. It has caused a lot of people asking a lot questions. September 11 is often said to be the defining moment in the Bush presidency, even of modern history. Did Bush know about the attacks before they happened? If he did, why didn’t he do anything to prevent it? Why did it take the lives of about 3.000 innocent people to later have more security in our country?
The President has proposed a bold an fair tax relief plan that will reduce the inequalities of the current tax code and help ensure that America remains prosperous. Whether you love President Bush or hate him, chances are his new tax cut will bring you some savings. The 9/11 tragedy, the destruction of the Twin Trade Towers in New York City, hit the economy again, with another 146,000 jobs lost in New York City alone. The first year of newly elected President George W. Bush\'s Administration was less than auspicious. However, President Bush took charge of the economy and forced substantial tax cuts through Congress.
The current War in Iraq has divided this country in two; those who support and those who oppose George W. Bush and his administration. Yes, we finally captured Saddam Hussein, one of our country’s most wanted enemy. But was it for Iraq’s oil? Was it for Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction? No, there were no WMD found in any part of Iraq. Was it because supposedly Saddam Hussein sold bombs to Osama Bin Laden and was involved with 09/11/2001? No, that was proven wrong, and Hussein hates Bin Laden. Was it because he wanted to show his father, George Bush Sr., that he could catch his old nemesis?
I hope I didn’t change your mind about him, I just wanted to clarify some of the reality. I cant say whether Bush is a good guy or not, or if he sucks as a President, and I don’t think anyone can either. He’s the President and needs to have the respect that he deserves.
